Sunday Photo Fiction is a weekly challenge presented by my old friend Al Forbes.
The idea is to write a short story (200 word max) inspired by what you see in his picture (below).
This week’s excellent photo sends me wandering into all sorts of sun-dappled and moonlit places, full of light and happiness.

Mummy, the shadows on my blinds are scaring me.
Don’t be silly, sweetheart, that is your favourite tree.
Why is it moving so much?
It is only the wind, darling, nothing to worry about.
That looks like a man, a big scary nasty man!
No, honey, it is just the strong branch your swing hangs from.
It looks different at night, mummy.
I know, baby, tomorrow we will go out and tell your tree to behave, okay?
The man crawls along the branch, clenching his axe in his teeth.
